3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Fresh, grassy, slightly nutty aroma. Cloudy pale yellow, no visible carbonation, and a very slight hint of a head spread out. Grassy, pils-like flavor with a dull bitterness. Thin body, not a lot to grab onto. Pleasant enough, but could probably use a little more bittering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale colored. Fruity, malty flavor. Slightly grassy and decently balanced. I find this can be quite variable. At its best, it is a light, fruity, citrusy, flavorful pils, almost ale-like. It seems to go off rather easily, though, and then it gets rather insipid (see some ratings below). This rating is for a can in top condition.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Nose of light malt, clear yellow, the flavor is malty. Nice crisp grassy note and a full body. Mouthfeel is lacking and citrusy but decent. A crispy golden pilsner, seems more like an ale though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smallish white head. Light yellow body. Dense firm malty straw aroma with hoppy caramel notes. Dry caramelly straw and malt taste with dry grainy hoppy notes. Clean, clear mouthfeel. Dry, resiny malty sweetish aftertaste with medicinal notes. Nice! (0.35l can from, I think, the supermarket in the Matsumoto bus station.)
